Interesting colour combination

This isn't a colour combination I would have chosen - orange, beige and teal.  It is the colour combination for the latest JustRite Friday Challenge.  However, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it when they finally came together. Just shows my tastes are pretty boring.  I struggled to even find orange paper and elements.  I have followed the sketch on Sketchy Colours.

The tulips and border stamps are from an older Just Rite stamp set "Breath of Spring" coloured with copics YR00,02,04,07; BG10,13,15,18 & E31,33,35.  The papers are Kaisercraft and DCWV.  I have used a number of dies one Spellbinders oval and leaves from Marianne designs LR0117, LR0245 which I cut up into smaller pieces, one of the flowers from LR0192 and the CR1204 oval.  The final embellishments are some Kaisercraft pearls, seam binding and a paper rose.

Thankyou for looking
